My husband, Bart, is a 5th generation farmer and 3rd generation to raise turkeys. However, I did not grow up on a farm. We live on a turkey farm in central Iowa where we raise our two little boys and over 100,000 turkeys annually.
HOW I’VE TOLD MY STORY
When we started farming, I learned so many truly interesting things that I wanted to share with others. I started my blog, On the Banks of Squaw Creek, in 2009 as a way of giving others a glimpse into the world of a turkey farmer. Now, as a volunteer for CommonGround, I continue to use my blog and Facebook page to connect with women who don’t have a direct link to a farm.
